David Meltzer began his literary career during 'the Beat' heyday in San Francisco, reading poetry to jazz accompaniment
A contemporary of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey as well as an influence on Bob Dylan, David Meltzer began his literary career during 'the Beat' heyday in San Francisco, reading poetry to jazz accompaniment at the famous Jazz Cellar. Recorded and produced in 1958 by legendary L.A. record producer Jim Dickson. One of the first recordings to mix poetry with jazz, they harkens back to the days of the Beat Generation of the West Coast. His poetry is interwoven with the sounds of an ensemble of West Coast jazz musicians of the time, led by Bob Dorough on piano with Ernie Williams, trumpet, Chiz Harris, drums and Larry Honings, bass.
